A local trailer manufacturer is celebrating after the motorbike team it sponsors won the 2013 British Supersport Championship title on Sunday (October 20).
Andover Trailers, based on the Walworth Business Park, has supported the Mar-Train Racing team since 2005 and its name features prominently on the team’s R6 Yamaha bikes. It is run by one of its most prestigious customers, Northern Ireland-based Mar-Train Heavy Haulage, which has been buying specialised trailers from the Andover firm for more than 24 years.
After a tense weekend of racing at a wet and rainy Brands Hatch, Mar-Train Racing’s Stuart Easton soared past the previous day’s leaders on the tenth lap to be crowned the race winner and scoop the title for his team with his tenth win of the season.
Ivan Collins, Andover Trailers Sales Director, says: “We’re absolutely delighted that Mar-Train Racing took victory at the weekend’s race. Stuart is a great rider and it’s fantastic that he secured the championship, which means so much not only to him but the whole team. Every member of Mar-Train racing puts their heart and soul into these competitions and we’re delighted to be part of their championship winning operation.”
Mar-Train’s Managing Director and Team Principal, Tim Martin, added: “Stuart deserved the win as he was pushing hard and taking the chances you sometimes have to, to win a championship. Thanks to my whole team for a great season and a huge thank you to Andover Trailers, who’s invaluable support enables us to keep competing and hopefully winning races like these.”
The sponsorship agreement with Mar-Train Racing strengthens a business relationship between Andover Trailers and Mar-Train Heavy Haulage, which earlier this year saw Andover supply Mar-Train with a new five axle step frame trailer worth more than £80,000, which will be used to transport heavy-duty machinery around the UK and Europe.
